Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted in Yuma, Arizona, to evaluate the effects of planting date on cotton yields. One Pima and the Upland cotton varieties were planted on four dates from 23 February to 5 April. DPL-90 produced the highest yield (1760 lbs lint acre⁻¹) at the second planting date (9 March). The lowest yields, for all varieties, resulted from the latest planting date (5 April). The greatest reductions in yield when comparing an early planting date to the latest planting date, were observed for DPL-90 and Pima S-6. However, in spite of the reduction in yield, DPL-90 was the highest yielding variety at the latest planting date.
